I’m excited to introduce you to my friend (and a friend of 1C13P) author and artist David Murray. He just released a new fiction adventure book and I wanted to find out more about it. So we did a quick interview that I’d like to share with you. And as a special treat he has a trailer to go with it! Click on the link below to view it. It’s short and it’s excellent! This book is written for a broad audience but I think it would be especially good for young people (boys) tween-twenty. ~Lori
What prompted you to write Retroshock?
I’m always looking for ways to glorify God in film, or literature. When I was at Disney feature animation a friend and I had the typical conversation that occurs with everyone. “If you could go back in time… who would you meet?” As a Christian I am always fascinated by the person of Christ and would want to go back and meet Jesus. When I seriously considered writing a screenplay on that subject, the challenge was how to weave a story around that premise and make it interesting as the main character is led to the inevitable confrontation.
Who is the book written for?
I wrote the book to be entertaining and thought provoking for a broad audience.
Two brothers, 17 and 19 years olds , told me they loved the story and likened it to a John Grisham novel.
Representing a more mature audience, a gentleman in his 60’s reviewed Retroshock for the Harper Collin’s Authonomy website and gave it a very glowing review.
Can you tell us a little about the plot?
Here’s the basic pitch:
Faced with the complex theories of time travel, Josh Kensington, a 25 year old genius inventor knows that his time chamber must never be used. When a billionaire defense contractor prepares to use his machine to send assassins back in time to alter the course of history, Josh plans to erase the existence of the time machine itself.
To do that he must alter his own past in the most profound way possible. As an atheist, his desperate mission leads him on a path to confront the person of Christ. With time coordinates set, will his meeting reveal an ordinary man, or the creator of time itself?
